We’re excited to share with you our Five-Year strategic plan for Cal’s Undocumented Student Program.
Every year 65,000 Undocumented Students Graduate from U.S. high schools. California is home to 40 percent of these students, the majority of whom face enormous barriers to their success in school and beyond, including poverty, discrimination, and a legal system that is stacked against them. True to its motto of “Fiat Lux” (“Let there be light”), UC Berkeley has become a national leader in creating a welcoming environment for these students and supporting them to reach their potential. Through the Undocumented Student Program, Cal is carrying out its public mission to serve the people of California, while ensuring that undocumented students are treated with the respect and dignity they deserve.
Now entering its fourth year, the Undocumented Student Program is at an early yet critical crossroads in its evolution. The following strategic plan describes how the program will continue to push forward by pursuing our two overarching goals. Learn about the evolution of the Undocumented Student Program and explore these goals and related strategies in more detail.Read the Strategic Plan
